PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Portland police sergeant is scheduled for a court arraignment after an incident over the weekend in which police say he was driving drunk in a police car while off duty.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://goo.gl/TUkN5M ) 43-year-old Timothy K. Robinson will appear in court Tuesday on suspicion of driving under the influence of intoxicants.

Jail staff says he was booked into Washington County jail early Saturday and released several hours later. An 18-year police veteran, Robinson works in the drugs and vice division.
